Puyol could be forced to end career

Carles Puyol has admitted that he may have to stop playing the game if injuries continue to blight his career.

The Barcelona centre back has found it difficult to play often for the club recently as he struggles with injuries.

I never considered going to Milan. I want to stay with Barca. My idea is to continue here. I have three years left on this contract and if I can, I will prolong that further.

I have always said that I want to play until my 40s, but if I still have discomfort then I will have to stop.

If I am not right, I will not fulfil my contract, I will go, I will thank everyone and leave. I am trying to return as soon as possible, the knee rules the decision."
